With fall/winter and COVID well in full swing these days many have been left wondering whether or not the definition of fully vaccinated will change to include booster shots. According to Dr Fauci, that definition probably won’t change despite the need for some to actually get the booster shots for themselves and their families. However, if you or your family feel it is appropriate to get a booster shot — you can now do so so long as each person is over the age of 18 per CDC guidelines.
“If you look at the data that we have, fully vaccinated right now, by definition, is the original two doses [of] … Pfizer and Moderna and a single dose with [the one-shot Johnson & Johnson],” Fauci told ABC anchor Martha Raddatz on “This Week.”
“We’ll continue to follow the data, because right now when we’re boosting people, what we’re doing is following them. We’re going to see what the durability of that protection is, and as we always do, you just follow and let the data guide your policy and let the data guide your recommendations.”
